    I’m working on some banners and other decor for two separate baby showers and would love some extra sewing supplies! As for the flyers I’m not sure, Christmas cards perhaps? Thanks!

    Lisa says:

    I would use the sewing kit to hem my new khakis instead of taking them to the dry cleaners to pay for it!

    And I would use the fliers…well I don’t really have a use for fliers, but it would be funny to use them to embarrass my ex husband who cheated on me, if you support mischief! . :D

    Angela says:

    I would love to win this! I am teaching myself to sew with a sewing machine handed down from my grandmother! Beyond mastering the basics, I would love to try and make your pillowcase top! I am writing from Canada therefore wouldn’t qualify for the flyers, but would still love to win the package! I have your blog on my google reader and I’ve been following you since you were one wedding bee! I think your projects are great and easy to follow! Thanks!

  9. Megan
    Megan says:

    Ohh, colored elastic thread! I would definitely make something with an elastic waistband, ha! Or maybe a smocked shirt I’ve had my eye on the pattern for a while…. decisions decisions!

  10. Lindsay
    Lindsay says:

    What an amazing give-away! I live in the Netherlands, not in the US unfortunately ;-)

    I bought my first sewingmachine last week, so now I can finaly start sewing! I have tons of ideas to make, and the first thing I will be making is a very special letter for my twinsister. She is my best friend and to thank her for all the support, love and joy she gave me in our life. I want to sew her a letter, sew the words and after that I would like to sew the envelope as well. This way, she’ll have a super soft and cute letter from me :D and I know she’ll love it because she’s crazy about fabric, selfmade products and cute stuff :)

    Sylvie Créative says:

    What a nice giveaway to surprise you after receiving it with creative projects using all the threads. I’m dreaming about the nice elastic threads. I follow you blog and I’m living in Spain ;) Thank you very much!

    Sewing Princess says:

    What a lovely package! And from Chile is even more appreciated. I awfully need new scissors. I am outside the US…no fliers for me :o(

  18. Lydia
    Lydia says:

    I found this really nice and handy sort of bag to store scissors in, with a beautiful cross stitching pattern on it. So if I would be the lucky winner of the sewing kit I would make that for the two scissors.

    I would use the flyers for my sister I think. She is learning to be a composer, and she could use some flyers to let people know she exists, it’s a hard business out there!

    P.S. I’m from The Netherlands

  21. Kim

    I have had a skirt project bookmarked since the spring but it uses elastic thread and I’ve been nervous! If beautiful elastic thread arrived on my doorstep I’d be out of excuses!

    ColleenB. says:

    First off, thank U 4 this wonderful opportunity on this Great giveaway.
    I would use the sewing supplies to make craft projects for Christmas…..ornaments for the trees and homemade ornaments as gifts by adding to gift wrapped package
    As for the flyers, I haven’t a clue yet on those.
    Thanks again.

    Sara says:

    I just started sewing not to long ago. I started with baby quilts and now i have ventured onto other things. I have been making baby shoes, diaper bags and decorating onesies. The variety of color would really help with making the colors pop on the onesies. I am an international reader who reads your blog and love your ideas. I especially like your duct tape flower.

  24. Debbie
    Debbie says:

    Joy this would be amazing to win! I’ve been putting off buying a sewing machine because I haven’t figured out which one to buy, but I think winning a sewing kit like this would motivate me to get back to sewing! I would make pillows first. :-)

  25. hsnmp
    hsnmp says:

    I totally would love to win this to make my daughters colorful dresses and more. I really can’t find any other color then black and white in this color elastic threat.

    I’m getting married and i have been wanting to make my bridesmaids some really cute infinity dresses so they can have a gift that they can actually use as a thank you for putting up with me through the whole process

    IRENE HOLMES says:

    I am in the process of getting used sewing machines and supplies to set up free sewing classes for a local young teen pregnancy center. Getting these supplies and flyers would be a great promotional tool! The supplies would help in utilizing for the classroom!

  29. Shannon
    Shannon says:

    I would make the table runner I am procrastinating on. For the flyers I would use them for party invites.

  30. Ali
    Ali says:

    Ooooh, wow. What a thoughtful collection.

    My first project?! A tote for our creations (two sisters crafting). The flyers we would use to promote our brand spanking new shop for the Holidays!

  31. Georgia Nasios
    Georgia Nasios says:

    My first project would be a jacket for my Golden Retriever. With the fall right around the corner, I think he would look cute in a dog pea coat!

    Thanks you!

    • Georgia Nasios
      Georgia Nasios says:

      I forgot to say what I would do with the flyers – I would create some flyers for a small business that I run…laser engraving services and laser engraved gifts. These would be perfect with the holiday season coming up to give out at the craft fairs and such.

  32. Laura
    Laura says:

    I Follow your blog….and….I could see me useing the sewing-pack or several different projects but mainly Christmas gifts.
    I live in the US but I am under 18.

  33. Susan Krauss
    Susan Krauss says:

    Wow! What a great giveaway! I would use the supplies to help me make some 3D flower pillows for my bedroom makeover. With the Uprint cards, I would actually make them into holiday cards. I have a huge card list and this would be a fantastic money saver this year!

  34. Tasha
    Tasha says:

    I would use the flyers to promote my photography and hopefully get some interest going so that I could start printing photos. I would use the crafting supplies for a number of holiday gifts, including a laptop bag for my little brother (I am building a laptop for him), a sling backpack for my dad (who rides his bike to work every day and lost his Kindle last year because he uses a plastic bag!), a fuzzy hat for my mom (because she’s cool) and some oven mitts for my sister (because she loves to bake)!

  35. Anna
    Anna says:

    I LOVE this blog. I would use the sewing package to make some HIS and HERS embroideries I’ve been thinking up the past few days. OR to sew something special for my CASA child. (Court Appointed Special Advocates for children) I honestly have no clue what I would use the flyers for. Maybe to help out a little sewing shop that just opened in town, That’s Sew Nice, with their promotions.

  36. Cheverly
    Cheverly says:

    This is such a great idea! It’s also fun to see what everyone else would use these for. I’d use the kit to embroider some felt owl ornaments I’m making for my BFF… she’s an owl AND Christmas freak, so I know she’ll love them. And as for the flyers, I’d work with my brother (who is an AMAZING artist) to design some flyers to promote his artwork.

  37. Brittany S
    Brittany S says:

    I live in Canada (not the USA). I would make a shirt. I have this beautiful mustard and white striped material that I’m going to try and make a shirt with. And then an infinity scarf. I love them.

  38. Miss Rosi
    Miss Rosi says:

    I would love to receive the sewing kit and I think my first project with new scissors(!) would hopefully be making a dress to sell online!

  39. Stacey
    Stacey says:

    I would use the sewing kit to get started on Christmast presents! And the flyers I would donate to a non-profit organization my best friend works for. They work with the homeless to find them homes and jobs and anything else they need to get back on their feet, and they need to advertise a coat drive coming up. I’m designing the flyer for them for the drive, so being able to get the flyers printed for them too would be wonderful! :)

  40. Sindy
    Sindy says:

    I’m sure I would use it for my Christmas projects.
    I’m planning on making apron for the girls in the family and the flyers would make great holiday greeting cards for family and clients (but unfortunatelly i’m not in US).

  41. Kathleen
    Kathleen says:

    Wow, what to make first! I’ve been wanting to try one of the great tutorials out there for the shirred scarves made with the elastic thread — i think I would start with one of those. Then I would sit with my two daughters and make holiday gifts for their friends and teachers (sachets & coasters).

    As for the flyers, I would use them to help promote an upcoming service project my oldest’s Girl Scout troop is in the planning stages for (the date of the event will be some time in the spring). It will be along the lines of a self-defense/anti-bullying workshop for girls. They in still in the begining stages of planning.

    Thank you for your kindness and generousity (even if I don’t win)!

  42. Hannah
    Hannah says:

    Actually, I think I would like to make the joyful ruffled neck top. I’ve already made the upcycled ruffled dress (which turned out fabulous) and I would love to continue to make some of your other tutorials as well.
    As for the fliers, I would use them to promote my husband’s new sign shop :)
    I hope I win!

  43. Katherine
    Katherine says:

    I would definitely (finally) get around to sewing some missing buttons back on various articles of clothes :D

    Also, I’m in Canada so I wouldn’t be able to use the fliers!

  44. Cinnamon
    Cinnamon says:

    I would use the sewing kit to finally finish a tote bag project for my sister in law. She loves hand crafted accessoirs and I love making ones.
    My entry comes from Bulgaria (Europe). Good luck to all!

  45. Jilian
    Jilian says:

    Fun stuff!! I’d love to have all the thread options. My current project that I’ve bought fabric for and have not yet made is little snuggly taggie blankets to attach to strollers/carseats for all my new mommy friends! Maybe even with crinkle inside.

  46. Rose
    Rose says:

    I love your tutorials and weddings pictures, actually i love the fact you did most of it and your wedding dress (of course) yourself as a crafter you are. =)

    If i win this giveaway i think i will use the sewing package (cause i live in Dom Rep):-) to make some felt flowers with some stitches on the petals (cute)and maybe a felt cellphone case that im dying to do but haven’t gotten the time yet, but I’d surely do if i get one of this nice sewing package.

  47. Melissa
    Melissa says:

    I would love this little sewing kit, first project would probably be modding a pair of jeans I got paint on… I keep wanting to put some sort of patchwork and cut up old graphic tees to add, but haven’t found the graphic tees to use yet.

    I found your blog by searching for a teddy bear pattern and have been reading all the old postings. So many ideas!

  48. Hannah
    Hannah says:

    I would love to make hand made decorations for the holidays! I think they add a bit of charm and warmth to a house during the holidays. I also would donate the flyers to my local service-club for our upcoming fundraiser!

  49. Maria
    Maria says:

    I would love this to make holiday presents, I have to say I enjoyed reading every comment so much, it’s always really cool to see others craft and sewing plans :) I would use the fliers for my Dad’s little business, Thank you for the chance, I totally love your blog Joy!
